Filter Replica in eDirectory


Hi,

I am trying to create a filter replice between 2 edirectory servers.
One is the master and another is a read/write replica. I have a
requirement where the user in master replica needs to be replicated in
the replica server based on the filter. I have configured the filter in
iManager-->Roles and tasks-->Partition-->Replica View. However, when i
create a user in the master, the user is also created in the replica.
How can i configure the filter replica such that user object created in
the master does not get replicated due the filter that has been
configured.

Below is version information:
eDirectory 8.8 SP6 in RedHat Linux

Thanks.

Filtered replicas aren't used to filter objects, but rather to filter
attributes in objects.

If you want to limit replication of objects, create a separate partition
and place a replica just on the server that you want the objects
replicated to.

If this is not an option because of security reasons then use IDM to
sync user objects to another tree to create a 'filtered' view.

Ummm ... you CAN select what classes are hosted in the filtered
replicas ... granted, one can only have one set of filter per server.

Yeah, per class filtering can be done, but a filter that includes some
users and excludes others (which is what the OP is looking to do) - no,
that's not possible. 🙂

Re: Filter Replica in eDirectory


In the context of the thread title, your statement of "Filtered replicas
aren't used to filter objects," is inaccurate and/or misleading. And the
OP hasn't laid out clearly (to me) what exactly he/she wishes to do - if
it is indeed replication based on certain attribute VALUE(S), then the
use of filtered replica is totally inappropriate.

Fair enough. 🙂

That was how I read the request initially.

You seem to be contradicting your requirement?
